My I-485 case status updated to "Card being produced" this afternoon around 1:00pm and updated again to "Case approve" around 4:20pm

So I guess my case is APPROVED! :dancing:

It feels great that I do not have to worry about paper works in couple of years. This is a great blessing from God. The wait is painful and nerve wracking but very worth it. I wanted to thank everyone that helped and give me kind words of encouragement.
